We all ideally want to be on a healthy eating schedule. But despite out best efforts 鈥 like prepping healthy food for the week on Monday 鈥 by Wednesday, the feeling that garlic fries would sure be nice is hard to shake. When the weekend finally rolls around, we鈥檙e dying for our cheat day. (Read: pizza). If this sounds like you, you鈥檙e not alone. And we鈥檙e not the only ones who are right there with ya. According to the fine folks over at Caviar, as the week progresses, so do our cravings 鈥 er, need 鈥 for unhealthier food.

Caviar, a food ordering/delivery site that describes itself as 鈥渢he easiest way to order from America鈥檚 best independent restaurants,鈥 took a look at their data from last year and found that there is a 鈥渘oticeable upward trend in orders of categorically unhealthy items as the week progressed, with unhealthy food deliveries peaking in the middle of the weekend on Saturdays at 59 percent.鈥 Yep. Looks like people like to let loose when it鈥檚 the freakin鈥 weekend 鈥 and that same mentality extends to their diets too.


But we start out the week with such good intentions! 鈥淥rders of healthy items started out strong as customers kissed the weekend goodbye, accounting for 52 percent of deliveries made on Mondays 鈥 but those continued to taper down throughout the week.鈥 So if you give in to your greasy, fried, cheese-covered cravings in the midst of a wild weekend, just know that you鈥檙e definitely not alone.

*Wonders if it鈥檚 too early in the week for some delicious cheese-smothered tacos*
